This suggestion is still planned. I don’t have further updates on timing, but will share as we have them. Thanks.Luke commented
When will we be able to switch between a person to person chat to a team chat without having to click 4 times? Right now you have to click Teams, then Team Name, then Channel, then you still have to click on the channel chat window so that the favorites sidebar slides out of the way. I know MS can do a better job with the UI/UX than this design. Current method is so cumbersome.
Thanks to those of you who participated in the session with our user research team. We are continuing to work on this important feature, and will update you as we get closer to completing. ~ Alex
Hi Everyone – thank you for your patience. As was commented by someone below, Suphatra is no longer at Microsoft, but rest assured we are working on this feature.
This feature item is still in the works. Unfortunately I don’t have any additional details to share. I will keep you posted as I hear new info from the feature team.
I’m so happy to share an update with you! The feature team has let me know that they are working hard at this and are aiming for a spring time release.
Please comment below if you might be interested in testing or TAP, and include the industry, company size, and location of your org. We would likely want to hit a very wide range of demographics.
